According to British-Palestinian journalist Abdel Bari Atwan as heard in the 1st video at the bottom of this story, President Trump and America have just 'opened the gates of hell'with the recent airstrikes upon Iran-backed militias in Iraq including Iranian General Qassam Soliemani, with Atwan warning that 'America will soon miss the days of ISIS' while hinting at massive terror attacks upon America and WW3 ahead.
Reporting that he believes a 'proxy war' had already begun and that America had made a huge mistake, Atwan also claimed he believed Iran wouldn't remain silent, warning American bases in Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Abu Dhabi, Bahrain, Kuwait, and Al-Tanf would all become targets in this 'proxy war' with Iran recently officially identifying 35 targets that might be struck.
There is a dramatic shift underway in the Muslim world. The most serious threat we face in the Middle East and North Africa is no longer radical Islam but apocalyptic Islam.
We face not just one but two regional regimes whose rulers are driven not merely by violent political ideology, or by extremist theology, but by apocalyptic, genocidal eschatology, or End Times theology.
The first is the Islamic Republic of Iran. The second is the Islamic State, or ISIS. The leaders of the former are Shia. The latter are Sunni. Both believe that we are living in the End of Days as predicted in their ancient prophecies. Both believe that any moment now their messiah, the Mahdi, will be revealed on Earth as he establishes his global Islamic kingdom and impose sharia law. Both believe that Jesus will return not as the Savior or Son of God but as a lieutenant to the Mahdi, and that he will force non-Muslims to convert or die.
What’s more, both believe that the Mahdi will come only when the world is engulfed in chaos and carnage. They openly vow not simply to attack but to annihilate the United States and Israel. Iran and ISIS are both eager to hasten the coming of the Mahdi. Both believe that the Day of Judgment is coming soon, when they will be either rewarded for their actions or condemned to hell for eternity. And both are receiving relatively minimal international opposition. Consequently, both believe that Allah is on their side, that the wind is at their back, and that victory is both assured and imminent.
Some in the West first became aware of the apocalyptic beliefs inside Iran through the speeches of then-president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. But Iran’s Supreme Leader, the Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, has long held similar beliefs and openly expresses them.
“The coming of Imam Zaman [another name for the Mahdi] is the definite promise by Allah,” he declared in 2014. “The caravan of humanity from the Day of Creation has been moving . . . to the time of The Coming of Imam Mahdi. The awaiting for The Coming is a hopeful and powerful wait, providing the biggest opening for the Islamic society.”
But he adds that the “battle” to establish the Mahdi’s kingdom “will only end when the [Islamic] society can get rid of the oppressors’ front, with America at the head of it.”
As Fox News had reported in this November 2011 story, with Iran we're not dealing with a country that is thinking rationally in that they have motive, like a suicidal person, to make matters much worse due to their 'end times theology'. Rather than wanting to 'have peace', Iranian leaders actually believe that chaos and carnage is necessary, achieved through war, to bring on their 'madhi'.
Please keep in mind while reading this excerpt that it was written back in 2011 when Barack Obama was President and then updated on Fox News back in May of 2015. From their story.:
Why would Iran authorize a major terrorist operation on American soil? Skeptics say the much-discussed “foiled” Iranian plot makes no sense. We will know soon enough if the Feds have sufficient evidence related to this specific plot. But Iranian leaders may, in fact, have a motive to accelerate direct attacks on the U.S.: Shia Islamic eschatology, or "End Times" theology.
Iran’s Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad are convinced that the End of Days has come. They believe the Shia messiah known as the “Twelfth Imam” or the “Mahdi” will appear soon to establish a global Islamic kingdom known as the caliphate. What’s more, they believe the way to hasten the coming of the Twelfth Imam is to annihilate Israel (which they call the “Little Satan”), and the United States (which they call the “Great Satan”).
Much of the media has focused on Iran’s threats to wipe Israel “off the map.” But journalists have generally ignored the fact that the Iranian regime is equally determined to destroy the United States. On October 26, 2005, for example, Ahmadinejad said, “God willing, with the force of God behind it, we shall soon experience a world without the United States and Zionism.” On June 2, 2008, Ahmadinejad said, “Today, the time for the fall of the satanic power of the United States has come, and the countdown to the annihilation of the emperor of power and wealth has started.”
Iran’s leaders actually believe that the destruction of the U.S. is foreordained, just as the Soviet Union’s implosion was predetermined. They see U.S. economic weakness as a sign that the end of America is near.
So with 'Apocalyptic Islam' actually NEEDING the 'apocalypse' to bring on their 'Mahdi' who they believe will spread an Islamic kingdom across the world, showing that they truly yearn for 'chaos and carnage' to be unleashed, we should all prepare ourselves for 'the gates of hell opening' with Biblical prophecy also warning Iran's destruction would precede the 'Gog and Magog scenario' outlined by Ezekiel as we'll explore more in the next section of this story below.
In an astonishing act, the U.S. has assassinated Gen. Qassem Soleimani, the head of Iran’s elite Quds Force. He has been responsible for the deaths of many Americans. The Defense Department said it killed Soleimani because he “was actively developing plans to attack American diplomats and service members in Iraq and throughout the region.” It also accused Soleimani of approving the attacks on the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad earlier this week.
Not surprisingly, Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei warned that a “harsh retaliation is waiting” for the U.S. Iranian state TV carried a statement by Khamenei also calling Soleimani “the international face of resistance.” Experts are concerned that Iran will deploy sleeper cells in America and abroad to retaliate against the U.S. and its interests.
Israel is also preparing for the inevitable acts of aggression that Iran will continue to escalate against them. And that is the real end times significance of what is taking place. In Bible prophecy, Iran is Ancient Persia. The Iranians aren’t Arabs, they are Persians. And it is important to note that even though the religious zealots that control Iran are radical Muslims, most Iranian people are intelligent and peace seeking and love America.
And as this flashback story from Christian Evidence that Steve Quayle had linked to on his website on Monday morning reports, there is another prophecy concerning Iran that possibly precedes the Gog and Magog scenario outlined by Ezekiel. In Jeremiah 49:34-39, we are told that Elam will come under the judgement of God for conspiring to launch an attack against Israel in the “latter days”. Modern day Iran is comprised of ancient Elam (about one-tenth) and Persia. This prophecy concerning Iran has not yet been fulfilled but seems to align with Iran’s current nuclear aspirations!
While we cannot control what happens on the 'war front' in the days ahead, we should prepare ourselves and our families to survive whatever is ahead should war break out. As Mike Adams warns in the 2nd video below from Brighteon, it's shocking to realize how many people remain in total denial about the retribution that's going to be carried out by Iran's terror cells that are already embedded in cities across America.
As we'd reported on ANP back on January 2nd, according to testimony provided to Congress several years ago, there have long been Iranian sleeper cells embedded across America just waiting for the word to hit us. And with even the DHS now issuing a 2-week window for such attacks, those who haven't prepared may soon run out of time to do so.
